What people are saying about Limmud…
Limmud is an upbeat, fun event that offers philosophy, music, art, drama, comedy and dance under one roof and during one exciting weekend. It is an opportunity to see old friends and make new ones. We loved it!
I love Limmud because I enjoy shared communal Jewish experiences, and the opportunity to learn side-by-side with and from Jews of all denominations in New Orleans. This year is extra special as we have a very rare opportunity to spend Shabbat together as a community under one roof with many varied worship, learning, and social experiences. There is something for everyone!
Everyone at Limmud helps make it happen and makes it special. Each of us is simultaneously a learner and a teacher and we serve to bring everyone together and strengthen our community. Presenting and attending sessions, providing home hospitality, bringing Shabbat joy, putting out snacks, both participating and volunteering; each of us helps makeLimmud special.
We thoroughly enjoyed LimmudFest New Orleans 2012 as a recently married couple and newcomers to New Orleans. It was a wonderful way to get involved in the New Orleans Jewish community, meet people (including other newcomers), and learn with our new community.
It was at the first LimmudFest New Orleans, in 2010, that I met the New Orleans AVODAH corps members and alumni. Listening to those young Jews speak lovingly, knowledgably, critically, and passionately about Jewish topics and Jewish leaders was soul-enriching beyond words. My interactions with those folks at Limmud blossomed into friendships and planted the seed that allows me to spend my professional life engaged in Jewish learning.
“Limmud has taken the New Orleans-region’s Jewish community to the next level. Because of Limmud, we’re bigger, smarter, more connected, and more inclusive.”
